Dara Niketic (Randolph College, 2015) joins the University of Utah as a PhD candidate in Molecular, Cellular and Evolutionary Biology. Her first experience on campus was a visit to Rare Books in August 2013, where she held our first editions of Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species (1859), The Descent of Man (1871), and other great works from the past.
“It was amazing to be close to pieces of history that are so valuable to my field,” said Dara.
Rare Books invites all students, new and returning, to visit us in the Special Collections Reference Room,
find us online,
enjoy our online exhibitions,
view our collection of digitized books,
and follow our blog, Open Book,
for your own signature experience on the way to success in your field.
